    I read in this forums that we can have a chroot environment, by setting one variable to true.
    1)Is there any risk on doing this for all my previous sites? I only have ispconfig on my production server and right now I can't test before doing this kind of things.
    2)Would my previous sites have a chroot enviroment or only de new sites?
    3)The chroot enviroment would be only for the ssh sessions?
    4)Is there a way I can have a separete php.ini for each site? I remeber this could be done with ensim, but could be done with ispconfig?

    First, to use chrooting, you will have to build a new patched SSH daemon that supports chrooting:


    1) That is not easy to predict, normally there should be no risk as the chroot script just adds a few directories and files to the users directory.
    2) New and updated sites.
    3) Yes.
    4) First you will have to install suphp:


    and then enable SuPHP in ISPConfig. Afterwards you will be able to specify a custom php.ini in the apache directives field with a suphp directive.
